    I was excited to receive my pre-ordered Guide's Edition Synik 22 in Ursa. I'm seriously considering hanging it on the living room wall near my door as an optimistic sign of things to come, for when this pandemic is over.

    It's more beautiful than I'd anticipated. I love the details, including the coyote-colored o-rings. It goes well with the Burnt Orange pouch I ordered alongside it.

    It's too nice to be used solely for commuting. I've made a pledge to myself that I'll start hiking with it once it's safe to do so; maybe even now if I can find out about local trails that are not too crowded, which can be an issue here in Rhode Island.

    That is a beautiful color choice for the Pick-Up Truck. I just ordered one in Burnt Orange.
    I feel like it's such a good stay-at-home bag.
    And that dog is such a poser!

    I do not currently have any of the three bags you mention... but I do have an MCB and perhaps by virtue of the shape and use of space...or sheer magic...I'd say the Icon holds a bit more. Hard to explain...it's a different bag...that does what it does remarkably well. Really, the origami-osity of all TB designs is astounding to me...To understand so clearly and design so particularly that the carrier can feel like they have a bag that will carry what they need in a remarkably maximally spacious and tidy way and at the same time look so darn cool.

    How would you compare the volume of the Icon with TB other zippered shoulder bags like the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag or the Daylight Briefcase? Even a SBC size and volume comparison would be really useful.

    While I use the FJN for journaling during the year, I need to move its content when it is full, usually at the 6 month mark or later and certainly at the end of the year.

    Some years, the volume amounts to a really big paperback, much too thick to fit into my previous setup of a folded Large OP. TB small shoulder bags to the rescue, it seems.

    #throwbackthursday to what seems like the distant past, but was really only a week or two ago: the good old pre-coronoavirus days when we could hang out at a coffeeshop.

    Just posting because I had a "Wow, I love my Nordic Halcyon Co-Pilot" moment.

    While a bit sad to see this beautiful fabric being phased out, knowing that it is going away just makes me appreciate my CP a little more.

    Hi All,

    My GE Synik 22 in Ursa showed up a day early. This is just a quick snapshot that doesn't do justice to the original colors, but what really struck me was how beautifully Coyote Mesh went with the color of Ursa in this bag. I also like the Logic Blue against Ursa (HLT 1 to the side; my Logic Blue Icon did not pose in this picture). The accessory in the open bottom zippered pocket is the (now retired) Skookum Dog 3D Mesh Cube (I'll include the picture from the product page incase the main page link I've used goes away -- so far, the entry hasn't disappeared from my wish list, and I can still use the link there to find the original product page):

    Hope someone else posts a better photo of Ursa -- it's like a cross between dark chocolate and taupe.

    Do all the A5 items fit in the central compartment?
